Dappy, the diminutive rapper from chart-topping trio N-Dubz, has been hospitalised after a horse kicked him in the face.

He was riding the horse at his Hertfordshire home when it threw him and stamped on his face, according to a source who spoke to the Mirror: "Dappy sees himself as a bit of a lord of the manor and he was cantering around when the horse reared up suddenly … He was left sprawled on the ground, and to make matters even worse, the horse then stamped on his face. There was blood everywhere." His spokesman confirmed the accident, saying that he was rushed to hospital for treatment.

It crowns a bad year for the star, whose solo album yielded two top three hits in 2012 – in January he was given a six-month suspended sentence and 150 hours of community service following a conviction for affray and assault, and had to pay £6,500 in costs. He later lost an appeal. His planned co-headline autumn tour with grime star Wiley, the awkwardly titled Meeting of the Minds, was cancelled, and he was also accused of hitting a fan in the face with a microphone during a gig earlier in the year.
